The Burton films were the forerunners for not only Nolan's trilogy, but also for practically every tent-pole movie -- especially superhero movies -- to follow. I personally love Burton's two Batman films and am supremely disappointed he wasn't able to make a third like he originally planned. They're unabashedly dark, comical, grotesquely gothic, and infused with the right amount of German Expressionism and the iconography of noir. And it's because of Burton's films that we got Batman: The Animated Series, which to this day I would consider a major contender for greatest animated series in TV history. The Schumacher movies are a completely different story, and like the light and colorful Batman stories of the 50s and 60s in which he and Robin fought dinosaurs and aliens, should simply be seen as a "sign of the times."

Batman Returns is a polarizing one it seems. It had a chance to be great IMO...but Burton chose to film on sound stages? Ugh....which well looked like they filmed on soundstages and the action was not great. The film was too whimsical for me. My wife though loves Burtons whimsical films and she loved Pfeiffers Catwoman.
Pfeiffer as Catwoman was great, but her origin was terrible and ill conceived IMO.
